Coronavirus Update

Posted: 23/3/2020

It is with a deep regret that the Organising Committee of Charles Hurst Jaguar Land Rover Bangor Town Regatta have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 regatta.  This is a decision that has not been taken lightly and we do so in full consultation with the current Government guidelines on the ongoing Covid-19 situation which is expected to last into at least June 2020.

 We understand that this will be deeply disappointing to competitors, as it is for everyone involved, however, the health and wellbeing of our competitors, volunteers, supporters and the residents of Bangor are our utmost priority.  The preparation involved in an event of this size is considerable both for the event organisers, host yacht club, suppliers and of course for competitors and their families and it is with this in mind that we have made the decision at this point.  Full refunds will be available to those who have paid already and can be obtained by contacting the Royal Ulster Yacht Club Office on 02891 270568.

 Looking ahead to 2021

 That being said we are looking to run the event on 24th – 27th June 2021 and we do hope to see all our competitors back with us in a year’s time.  All entry fees will be frozen at the 2020 prices and with the extra year to plan, we will be coming back bigger and better than ever!  Please keep following us on Facebook and keep an eye on the event website for details towards the end of this year.

 Finally, please do all look after yourselves and your loved ones in this deeply unsettling time as we can’t wait to welcome everyone back fit and well in 2021.
